During a time when the wildfires were close, baby Tiana was born in Penasco, NM, less than 20 miles from the fire’s edge. Tiana’s family had a car filled with baby formula and diapers in case an evacuation was called. During a stressful time, baby Tiana was a very calm, corporative newborn! She endured many outfit changes and took quick catnaps so we could photograph both her sleeping and her beautiful eyes.
The Red River Community House hosts outdoor weddings in front of their building. The mountains and the ponderosa pines loom behind the altar and behind Red River’s main street. Ashley and Jordan had a triangle alter made with aspen trees. Gorgeous flowers made with sunflowers and roses hung on the alter. These photos include immediate and extended family, shots of the bridesmaids and groomsmen, the entire wedding party together, and all four legged friends.
This was a fun morning engagement session with a couple that has a new home in Taos! It was fun to use different spaces around Chasity and Bil’s new home. The mountain views are so inviting out on the mesa, with or without the fire-season smoke! This couple will also host their September wedding at their house with wedding guests coming from all over the United States. Congratulations on a wonderful engagement!
Callie and Russel came to the mountains of Taos, NM for their annual April vacation which coincided with Callie’s 50th birthday! These two stayed at El Monte Sagrado a beautiful resort in town. We had fun walking around the grounds of El Monte and tracking down the early blooms on trees to use for backgrounds. We had a super calm morning amongst this unusually windy spring so it was fun to be outside in the cool mountain springtime temperatures.
Even though the leaves are taking longer than usual to appear this year, we found dome beautiful backgrounds for this senior’s photos! Jenica attends high school in Penasco. She’s on the basketball team and loves her blue Toyota Tacoma. Jenica has already completed almost two years of college credits during high school and will finish her degree at UNM in Taos.
